JAPANESE TRADITIONS COME ALIVE.

More than 100 ladies, including wives of Qatari government officials, former ambassadors of Qatar to Japan and Diplomatic Corps attended the 'Japan Night' hosted by Hiroko Kitazume, the wife of Japanese Ambassador to Qatar HE Yukio Kitazume, at her residence recently.

Fashion and jewellery designer Sarah Abdulghani Nasser coordinated the event organised to introduce Japanese culture such as Ikebana, Tea ceremony, Kimono and Kito (a kind of musical instrument) to the guests.

Kimono is a traditional costume of Japan, which requires a special technique to wear.

It is used on festivals or special days such as 'coming of age day' when a girl reaches the age of 20.

Reema, a Qatari girl, efficiently arranged an Ikebana (Japanese art of flower arrangement) on her own.

Sumiko Kobayashi played Koto (a Japanese harp).

Hiroko hosted the night to cherish her days in Qatar after she leaves the country upon the completion of her husband's tenure as ambassador ends at the end of this month.
